Emily Dickinson
The Day that I was crowned
printer friendly version
The Day that I was crowned
Was like the other Days --
Until the Coronation came --
And then -- 'twas Otherwise --

As Carbon in the Coal
And Carbon in the Gem
Are One -- and yet the former
Were dull for Diadem --

I rose, and all was plain --
But when the Day declined
Myself and It, in Majesty
Were equally -- adorned --

The Grace that I -- was chose --
To Me -- surpassed the Crown
That was the Witness for the Grace --
'Twas even that 'twas Mine --
